PPTP Clients not getting a usable IP address
« on: December 11, 2008, 02:12:00 am »
Hi,

My setup is as follows:

cable internet connection (dynamic IP) >> router(192.168.0.1) >> pfsense WAN interface (192.168.0.12) >> pfsense LAN interface 172.16.0.1


Im trying to connect a computer from the 192.168.0.0 network via PPTP into the 172.16.0.0 network. I can dial in using the 192.168.0.12 IP but when connected it gives me the network address of the remote address range e.g. The remote address range that I have setup is 172.16.0.32 and when I connect my VPN connection the pfsense server assigns 172.16.0.32 as the VPN connections IP address which isn't allowing me to communicate with the 172.16.0.0 network.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Pablo.

Below is my iBooks network configuration:
